Computer won't change screen resolution

It used to. And now it won't. Every time I try it shuts itself off.
Any ideas?
It's an Altex that was given to me. I don't know what's in it.

    I have the installation cd that came with the card. I installed those drivers but it didn't help.

    It's a Nvidia nForce graphics card.

  • riverdaught Feb 07, 2009

    It's a Radeon 9200 series.

    NForce sounds more like the motherboard's bridge type.

    Read the following VERY CLOSELY!

    Right-Click on your desktop. Go to Properties (Screen Shot). Now click the, "Settings" tab at the top (Screen Shot). Now look at the, "Display" field and write all of the information into a response here (Screen Shot).

    Afterward we can try to help you.

    The easy way of finding out would be to right-click your desktop, go to properties, then at the top select the tab, "Settings." Give us the name of the, "Display" adapter and we'll tell you what type of video card you have.

When i put pc on this message comes up on screen saying input not supported and it floats round in a little box.


Hello,
This generally means you have the display resolution set higher then the monitor can support. To fix this press F8 after you turn the computer on. You may have to press it a couple times before the windows loading screen. A black menu will come up. Select safe mode. Your PC will load into safe mode with minimal drivers and settings. Go to the control panel and select display. Change your screen resolution to something lower then the setting is is at right now. If your screen is 19" or smaller try a setting of 1024x768 for starters. If its 20" or higher try 1280x1024 for starters.
Regards, Chris

How do I fit the desktop to the full screen of the monitor?


before you change your screen resolution, you should know first the dimension of your monitor..
this is the common screen resolution for 22 inch LCD monitor: 1600 x 1024 1920 x 1080 up to 3840 x 2400
Note: You can only use this resolution if your video card supports this given screen resolutions. You can set your resolution through configuring the display setup.

I have set the screen resoloution to high for my monitor and now get a message saying "screen resoloution to high set to 1680 x 900" but cant reset it as all i get is the message and a blank...


First try shutting system down, unplug tower for 1 minute and restart. Give it time to come up and if that doesn't work, shut it down again and try to start in "safe mode" do you get any screen at all? If you can start in safe mode try going to "control panel'", "device manager" then "personaliztion", and adjust your resolution. If you can't adjust your resolution in safe mode do a "system restore" back to when monitor worked.

Plug in the monitor and it comes on momentarily but then cuts out to blank screen.I got this given to me and am just trying to see if Ican use it with my hp system thanks.


Hi. If the display goes out after displaying the Power On Self-Test (POS) and the power indicator turns amber, it means that the display resolution of your computer is higher than what SyncMaster 192S can handle.

If you still have the monitor that you were using before, connect that one and change screen resolution to 800x600 and 60 Hertz. Turn off your computer then change monitor/LCD and turn on your computer. You may change screen resolution to optimize display on your SyncMaster 193S.

Let me know if you need help changing screen resolution or if you don't have the original monitor that you were using on your HP.

Connect it to a different computer, e.g., a notebook computer,
and set the screen-resolution to 800-by-600, and see if the monitor works.
Change the screen-resolution to 1024-by-768, and try again.
Change the screen-resolution to 1280-by-1024, and try again.

Connect a different monitor to your computer,
and set the screen-resolution to 800-by-600.
Then, disconnect the "alternate" monitor, and connect your monitor.
Change the screen-resolution to 1024-by-768, and try again.
Change the screen-resolution to 1280-by-1024, and try again.

Need Help Setting Up Monitor


Basically the monitor wants your video card to feed it the display at a resolution of 1024 by 768 pixels. The 60Hz is the frequency and is standard for lcd monitors. Since the monitor is designed for 1024X768, it is shutting itself off in order to prevent damage.

To change your resolution (I'm assuming you have Windows), right click on a blank area on your desktop and select Properties from the list that pops up. The Display Properties windows will open, click on settings and change it to 1024X768. Next click on the Advanced button and then the Monitor tab and make sure the refresh rate is set to 60 Hertz

Dell 2407 a04 Turns on (for 2 seconds) then off


your pc may be set to a resolution that is out of range for the monitor. Boot into "Safe mode" reset the Display settings to 640 x 480. reboot into normal mode then change the screen settings to your desired resolution.
